In memoriam – Professor Mike Artis

A- A A+

The EUI is very sad to learn of the passing of former Economics Professor Michael J. Artis on 8 January.

Professor Artis was a full-time professor at the EUI from 1995 through 2003, and subsequently returned for research visits in 2004 and 2005.

A loyal friend to the Institute, Professor Artis generously donated to the EUI Library several hundred high-quality research monographs on European monetary union, the European Monetary Authority, and Britain’s relationship to the ERM.  Known as the Professor Michael J. Artis Collection, these volumes are a valuable and highly referenced resource across the disciplines.

Professor Artis is survived by his wife Shirley and their two children, to whom the Institute extends its deepest sympathy.
